WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. - Three people were killed and another was hospitalized after multiple shootings in West Memphis overnight.
Two people were killed and another was hospitalized after a shooting at a West Memphis night club early Saturday.
According to police, the first shooting happened overnight Saturday at Second Chance Car Care Center on East Broadway Road.
The business is a car care center, but on the front window it reads, “private club for all occasions.”

One man who said he is the “club owner” said one of the people were shot outside the business by a truck, and at least two were shot inside.
That man told FOX13 one of the victims was his cousin, though he did not know his condition or provide his name.
One man was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other man died while at Regional One, according to police.
Police said the third victim was taken to the hospital with what appeared to be a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

Shortly after that shooting, officers responded to another shooting at a home on Oxford Street.
One woman was found suffering from a gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
None of the victims have been identified yet by authorities.
Investigators said it is “too early to know if these shootings are connected.”
Police said “every available unit” was called in to curtail further violence in the area.
West Memphis residents should expect to see a “larger than usual” police presence over the next few days.
FOX13 spoke with the person who is renting the home that got shot up in West Memphis.
That woman – Krisheena Cannady – said she believes both shootings are connected.
“Me and my family going to move away from West Memphis,” said Cannady. “Because it’s not going to stop. They shot like eight times in that front window, like 13 times in that second window and six times in that front window.”
Police have yet to identify the woman who died at the home on Oxford Street, but Cannady told FOX13 the victim was her son’s girlfriend.
Cannady said the 23-year-old woman was playing video games with her kids when she was shot in the head and killed.
